VHF National Field Day challenges and fun

Richard Staples, G4HGI and Lothians Radio Society, GM3HAM

Have you wondered what happens at a VHF National Field Day (VHF NFD)? Would you like to take part in one?

In this month’s webinar, we offer two different perspectives:

Firstly, RSGB VHF Contest Committee member Richard, G4HGI will talk about how the RSGB VHFCC uses the VHF Survey and other tools to formulate the rules and calendar for all VHF Contests, with specific emphasis on VHF NFD.

Secondly, we take a closer look at the VHF NFD through the eyes of Lothians Radio Society, GM3HAM and hear from its team about how they organise and operate these hilltop events in the Scottish borders. Andy, Brian, and John will discuss their experience of VHF NFD and their motivation to organise and compete in these events. They have made a short film capturing their 2023 VHF NFD weekend and they will use this, as well as an old cine film to show how this looked from a technical standpoint at much earlier club competition events in the 1970s.
